Le Fooding (2015) “Dans leur espace briqué-boisé à forte influence scandinave, ils préparent avec l’or noir du sidamo et l’unapu de la Brûlerie de Belleville voisine le « cream », évidemment, l’espresso acidulé comme il faut, le filtre en infusion et le « cortado », une noisette plus lactée qu’à l’ordinaire.”

Sprudge (2015) “It might seem like a trendy choice to take the time to make specialty coffee and bake pastries in house, but at Cream it’s easy to see that those choices are just about being an integral part of the local neighborhood, making a product and making it well, and creating a space that’s inviting and that people feel comfortable going to… Pretentious it is definitely not.”

Paris Bouge (2015)  “L’ambiance y est bonne, le lieu est joliment décoré et bien sûr le café est délicieux… On vous conseille donc de déguster le fameux crème (la mascotte du coffee), mais vous trouverez également du café filtre, un expresso, une noisette, du thé et un chocolat chaud (lui aussi pas mal du tout). Pour le déjeuner et le goûter, Cream propose des sandwiches roulés délicieux et des pâtisseries gourmandes telles que cookies, cakes et céréales, réalisés sur place.”

Lost in Cheeseland (2014) “A new coffee bar in the Belleville neighborhood that serves excellent pour-overs, sandwiches and a short but sharp selection of cakes. Given their location and history working under the tutelage of Ten Belles lead Thomas Lehoux, it’s of little surprise that Joe and Maxime roast Belleville Brûlerie beans exclusively.”

Her husband Philippe’s wine cellar is one of the best in town, with an emphasis on small independent producers and natural wines. Don’t expect a smile from him, or really anyone else working there, just be glad that this place exists. The lunch menu remains one of the best deals in town.

 An absolute favorite Continue reading
